Twitter / SethRussell

I finally signed up on twitter.  This was the last straw.  We will see if it is worth the time. 

I wonder why they don't provide for tagging your posts.

I don't get twitter as anything unique beyond any other blog including this one.

The unique part is the 140 character limit and that you can tweet from your blackberry.  It has had explosive growth in the last six months and now even McCain and Rush are twittering.  It does have some of the same "fast" of "fast"blogit and a river but also the social ability to follow and be followed.  What it's river needs is at least a language filter.  Of course like Reddit it's a grand waste of time, but who knows it might have the ability to get someone's attention because you can put stuff on their front page with the @ feature ... havent tried that yet.

In other news, Google and Microsoft are considering buying twitter with figures like $1B being bandied about.  Like it or not, there is no doubt that twitter has become the new thing on the black. Strangely enough even i, with very limited usage, ended up reconnecting with some old acquaintances from my Semantic Web days.

FYI, some spamming & worms on twitter covered in this article. Goes to prove that if there is something nice, like the internet or computers there is always someone else that wants to fuck it up!

I might try using my twitter account to take notes while i'm reading the net and commenting rather than my Google note book.   Its slower, especially when posting long url's which have to be converted, but it might be more hip.

Twitter has really come into its own now.  It has become a vital means of communication.  Witness: State Department Asked Twitter To Delay Downtime During Iranian Protests.  I wonder if people are tagging twits so that you can find all of these Iranians twittering.
